ST. GEORGE — A 14-year-old girl was taken to the hospital late Saturday night after falling off a portion of Dixie Rock, also known as the Sugarloaf, on Red Hills Parkway in St. George.
Just after 10 p.m., St. George Police officers responded on a report the girl had fallen 10 feet down the back side of Dixie Rock near the west parking lot, St. George Police Sgt. Dave Williams said.
Williams said it is unknown what led to the girl’s fall, but at that time of night, he said, Pioneer Park is closed and can be dangerous due to minimal lighting.
“We encourage people to be careful around that area after dusk,” Williams said. “We’ve had a lot of falling risks up there.”
The teenage girl sustained injuries that were not life-threatening to her back and finger, as well as scrapes on her arm from the landing. Her parents took her to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George for medical attention, Williams said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
